And we also recommend checking out the guitar contest as well, with the winners of the mandolin, banjo and fiddle contest heading on to appear at the Walnut Valley Festival contests in Winfield, Kansas.

And don’t miss the Band Scramble on Saturday afternoon.

The event will even feature a number of instrument raffles as well as food and craft vendors, a pancake breakfast and plenty of jamming. So make sure your calendar is cleared for the weekend because there is going to be no shortage of fun that weekend!
